For Your Safety 



General 



Warning 

• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this product to rain or any type of moisture. 

Caution 

• Do not open covers and do not attempt to repair the unit yourself. Refer servicing to qualified 
personnel. 

• Avoid contact with the rotating rollers when the ADF top cover is open. 






Power Source 



Warning 

• The power source voltage of this unit is listed on the nameplate. Only plug the unit into an outlet 
with the proper voltage. 

• When you operate this equipment, the outlet should be near the equipment and accessible. 

• To ensure safe operation the AC cord supplied must be inserted into standard three-prong AC 
outlet which is effectively grounded (earthed) through the normal wiring. 

• The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply that the power point is grounded 
(earthed) and that the installation is completely safe. For your safety, if in any doubt about the 
effective grounding (earthing) of the power point, consult a qualified electrician. 

• If the plug cannot be inserted into the AC outlet, contact a licensed electrician to replace the outlet 
with a properly grounded (earthed) one. Do not defeat the purpose of the grounding (earthing) plug 
(ex. do not use a conversion plug). 



Laser Safety 



Caution 

► The printer utilizes a laser. 

Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein 
may result in hazardous radiation exposure. 



Ozone Release 



Warning 

• Make sure that the printer is installed in a well ventilated room so as not to increase density of 
ozone in the air. Since ozone is heavier than air, it is recommended that air at floor level be 
ventilated. 



8 



For Your Safety 



Light Source 



Do not look directly at the light source lamps of the scanner as this may be harmful to your eyes. 



Moving the Units 



The scanner weighs approximately 1 7.3 kg {38.1 lbs.} and the printer weighs approximately 47.9 kg {1 05.5 lbs.}. 
They must be handled by two people. Turn the power off and remove the power cords when handling the units.

Letter Transparency 
Legal Paper 



216mmx279mm(8.5"x11") 
216 mm x 356 mm (8.5" x 14") 



Notes: 

• Make sure that you load the correct media. Each tray is designed and labeled 
for only paper or transparency. If you load the incorrect media type in a tray, it 
may cause a jam. 

• If you have the 2nd Cassette Feeder installed: 

— If you wish to use the automatic cassette-switching feature (a large print job, 
for example), make sure that all trays in the printer are the same media type 
and size. 

— The transparency tray should be inserted in the upper or middle tray slots. 

The printer is shipped with a media tray (either Letter paper or A4 paper) installed. 



Pull the media tray out of the printer. 




O Remove all packaging materials from inside the media tray; refer 
to the instruction sheet attached to the tray. 



34 



Setup 



O Push down on the metal plate until it clicks, locking it in place. 




jm Fan the media (paper/transparencies), then tap it on a level 
^ surface to avoid media jams or skewed printing. 





Notes: 

• To optimize your printer's performance, always use clean, unused media. 

• Be careful not to leave fingerprints on the media, which can result in a smudged 
print. 

• Reusing media that has been fed through the printer once (for example, after 
jams) can reduce the life of the consumables and paper path components. 

• The recommended transparency is 3M CG3700. If the print quality is poor, print 
on the other side. 



35 



Setup 



/J Place the media in the tray under the hooks. 

The height of media should not exceed the limit mark on the tray, or it may 
cause a jam. 




Notes: 

• Load media with the print side down. Most media has instructions 
recommending the side to be printed first 

• Do not mix different types or thicknesses of media in the media tray at one time; 
this may cause a jam. 



Q Slide the media tray completely into the slot. 



36 



Setup 



Margins and Print Area 



When the image is printed on the media, the image (print area) is a bit smaller than 
the media size. You may need to adjust the page margins in the application software 
to match the print area.

Loading Media in the Multi-purpose Tray 

The multi-purpose tray (MPT) serves as an additional tray for loading any type of 
media that ranges in size from 91 mm x 254 mm to 21 6 mm x 356 mm (3.6" x 1 0" to 
8.5" x 14"). Use it to load a single sheet or a stack of media. The amount of media 
you can load depends upon its thickness. 

Use the multi-purpose tray to accomplish the following: 

Print on standard and special media 

• Standard media 

— Laser paper [75 to 165 g/m 2 (20 to 44 lbs.)] 

• Special media 

— Labels 

— Envelope (#1 or larger size)* [Black Text only] 

— Transparency (The print quality may not be stable. Use the media tray for 
best reliability.) 

— Coated paper 

* If the Envelope is larger than #10, you must select a paper size that is larger than 
your envelope ( Q P. 124, P. 126, P. 133 of the Utilities and Drivers Reference 
Guide). 

Two-sided printing (double-sided) on laser paper 

You should not expect the same print quality and reliability that you get with one- 
sided printing. For details, refer to page 151 . 

Setting media thickness switch 

Because the printer accommodates various media weights from the multi-purpose 
tray, media thickness can be manually selected for the most reliable paper-picking. 
Follow these steps:

s Media problems 



Trouble 


Corrective Action 


Frequent paper- 
picking errors. 


Fan the paper or transparencies before installing them in 
their respective trays; this is especially important for 
transparencies because they tend to stick together. 


Make sure that you have loaded paper in the paper tray 
and transparencies in the transparency tray. 


Make sure that the media is installed under the hooks at 
the front of the media tray. 


If printing on transparencies and your printer has a 2nd 
Cassette Feeder, make sure that the transparency tray is 
installed in the upper or middle tray slot. 


Clean the paper-pick rollers ( Q P. 94 for instructions). 


Frequent media jams. 


Make sure that you use a high-quality laser paper: 
60-105 g/m 2 (16-28 lbs.) paper in the media trays and 
75-165 g/m 2 (20-44 lbs.) paper in the multi-purpose tray. 


If you are using media that is 1 05 g/m 2 (28 lbs.), check if 
the Face Down media output setting is selected in the 
driver. If it is, change the setting to Face Up. 


Use only recommended transparencies ( Q P. 152). 
We cannot guarantee the results of other transparencies 
in KX-PS8000 printers. 


Make sure that the media is installed under the hooks at 
the front of the media tray. 


Do not overfill the media tray, as indicated by the red line 
on the right side of the tray. 


Clean the paper-pick rollers ( Q P. 94 for instructions). 


Make sure that the media thickness switch is set 
correctly for the installed media ( Q P. 38). 



s Problems with image size and position 



Trouble 


Corrective Action 


Off-set images. 


Check your application for correct image sizing. 


Cut-off images. 


Check your application for image sizing. 


Make sure that the correct size media is in the media 
tray. 



123 



Care and Maintenance 



s Print quality problems 



Trouble 


Corrective Action 


Prints have dull, faded 
colors. 


Print the Color Calibration Page from the Color 
Calibration menu in the printer panel. Check the density 
settings for each color and compare them to the 
examples on the Color Density Samples. Refer to Setting 
the Color Density on page 70 for instructions on 
comparing and setting color density. 


Make sure that the imaging unit stays covered until 
immediately before installing it in the printer. Exposure to 
light can damage the imaging unit and will produce light 
streaks or faded prints. 


Make sure that the toner cartridges are installed correctly. 


Make sure that you use a high-quality laser paper: 
60-105 g/m 2 (16-28 lbs.) paper in the media trays and 
75-165 g/m 2 (20-44 lbs.) paper in the multi-purpose tray. 


Image is very faded or 
pieces of the image 
are missing; toner on 
the page is loose. 


When using the multi-purpose tray, make sure that you 
have selected the correct media type in the driver or in 
the Menu mode of the printer panel. 


Streaks or spots 


Most spots are caused by fingerprints or dust introduced 

into the printer while installing the imaging unit or loading 

media. 

Make sure that the surface where you unpack the 

imaging unit, paper, and transparencies is free of dust. 

Keep supplies in a covered area or a closed box. 


Make sure that the imaging unit stays covered until 
immediately before installing it in the printer. Exposure to 
light for more than 45 seconds can damage the imaging 
unit. 


Do not touch the right side or underside of the imaging 
unit; fingerprints affect print quality. 


Make sure that the paper or transparency film is clean. 


Make sure that you handle the media on the outside 
edges to avoid fingerprints. 


To get rid of fingerprint spots, print a few prints. 


The back of the 
printed page appears 
dirty. 


Toner particles have contaminated the transfer roller. 
This can happen if the printed image is larger than the 
media (for example, when printing on envelopes). Run 
10-20 prints to clean the transfer roller. 


The print quality of a 
transparency is poor. 


There is a defect on the coated surface of the 
transparency. Print on the other side.

Appendix 



s Paper Weight 



The printer is designed to work well with most types of paper. However, differences in 

paper may have significant effects on the quality of the print or the reliability of paper 

handling. 

It is strongly recommended that you always test paper before purchasing it to make 

sure it provides desirable performance.

• Recommended paper (for optimum performance): 

LETTER/LEGAL Hammermill LASERPRINT 90 g/m 2 (24 lbs.) 

A4 NEUSIEDLER COLOR COPY 90 g/m 2 

We do not recommend the use of 1 05 g/m 2 (28 lbs.) paper in areas of high or low 
humidity and temperature since paper feed problems may be experienced. 



s Types of Paper to Avoid 

• Extremely smooth or shiny paper or paper that is highly textured 

• Letterhead imprinted with low temperature or thermography. These materials may 
transfer onto the fusing roller and cause damage. Any pre-printed paper should 
use inks compatible with 200°C (392°F) for 0.1 second. 

• Damaged or wrinkled paper, or paper with irregularities such as tabs, staples, etc. 

• Multipart forms or carbonless paper 

• Paper with a 25% or more cotton and/or fiber content 

• Ink jet paper (It may transfer onto the fuser roller and cause damage.) 



s Two-Sided Printing 

Two-sided printing is possible by using the multi-purpose tray. However, you should 
not expect the same print quality and reliability that you get with one-sided printing. 
We strongly recommend that you follow the guidelines below. 

• Do not load more than 10 sheets in the multi-purpose tray. 

• Before loading paper in the multi-purpose tray, adjust it so that the edges are even. 



151 



Appendix 



s Transparencies and Labels 

You may also print on transparencies and labels that are made for the printer. 
Panasonic has tested and found that the following work satisfactorily. 



OHP transparency 
Labels 



3M CG3700 

AVERY 51 63, AVERY 51 64, AVERY 51 65 

Avery L7163, Avery L7165, Avery L7166, Avery L7167 

Avery L7168, Avery L7169 



• Re-using transparencies that have been fed through the printer once (for 
example, after jams or if the transparency is ejected without being printed) can 
reduce the life of the consumables and paper path components. 

• When using transparencies, if the print quality is poor, print on the other side. 

• With any label stock, the labels must completely cover the backing material. 





-YES- 









































Labels cover the entire backing material. 







NO 





























































The backing material is exposed. 



152 



Appendix 



s Envelopes 

It is recommended that you print in black text only and purchase high quality #10 or 
larger laser envelopes with diagonal seams, as shown in the diagram below: 




High quality envelopes have the following characteristics: 

• A thin, sharply creased leading edge 

• Paper weight of 90 g/m 2 (24 lbs.) 

• Flat, free of curls, wrinkles, nicks, etc. 



It is not recommended that you use envelopes with any of the following 
characteristics (using these may result in paper jams): 

• Irregularly shaped envelopes 

• Envelopes with curls, wrinkles, nicks, twists, dog-ears or other damage 

• Envelopes with side seam construction 

• Highly textured envelopes, or with extremely shiny surfaces 

• Envelopes that seal by removing a peel-off strip 

• Envelopes with more than one flap to be sealed 

• Self-adhesive envelopes 

• Envelopes that are baggy or not sharply creased 

• Embossed envelopes 

• Envelopes that have previously been printed on

Appendix 



Do not attempt to print on any of the following types of envelopes. These may cause 
damage to your printer. 

• Envelopes with clasps, snaps or tie strings (see Figure 1) 

• Envelopes with transparent windows (see Figure 2) 

• Envelopes that will melt, discolor, scorch offset or release hazardous emissions 
when exposed to 200°C (392°F) for 0.1 second 

• Envelopes that use encapsulated types of adhesive that do not require moistening 
but rely on pressure to seal them 















x F 


/ 




E 
















, ,| 








/ \ 






Figure 1 




Figure 2 





Always test a sample of the envelopes you are thinking of buying. Confirm that the 
envelope performs acceptably. 

For best printing results 

• Avoid printing in high humidity i.e., above 70%. 

High humidity may cause the envelope to curl and pick up excess toner. 
High humidity may also cause the envelope to seal. 

• Avoid printing below 10°C (50°F) with less than 30% relative humidity. 
Low temperature with low humidity may cause light printing. 

Envelope storage is very important. Store them away from moisture and humid air, 
where they can lay flat and their edges won't be bent or damaged. The humidity 
should not exceed 70% RH.
